Family Child Care Matters - Share Your Story

Decisions are being made by congress that are going to directly impact you and how you run your business.  Listen to this conversation.  Engage in the conversation.  Protect your business and protect the children in need of quality child care throughout this nation.

The National Association for Family Child Care has been working hard to be your voice on the hill but now it's your turn to raise your voice and be heard.  Congress goes on break for the month of August.  They return to their home states to listen to their constituents needs - that's you!

They are going to return to the hill in September and make important decisions that you are going to feel, regulatory and financial!

Samantha is, just like you, excited to make a difference in our community and our world. With a Master of Arts degree in English Literature, you might ask how she found herself building and writing for a website focused on child care. From 1995 through 2001, Samantha started her career working for Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) sponsors which introduced her to the importance of non-profits, community and quality child care. Her experience with Sponsors, State Officials, and Family Child Care Providers left a great and lasting impression. Later in her career and her most recent position at SAGE Publications, an academic publisher, was as a product manager for a new online resource! During this time many of Samantha's passions collided. A love for the written word, children and the proliferation of knowledge as well as a fascination with the resources the internet gives us, building a community for child care on is the perfect way to make the difference she wanted to. Needless to say, she is very excited to be an active part of creating and building
